As far as bootlegs go they're really pretty good and by all accounts the actual SOTA figures released in the revolutions line weren't very good either and shared a lot of the problems with their bootleg counterparts. I guess i'll just list the problems i have with mine and you can make your own decisions but seeing as you're planning on customizing them a lot of the problems could probably be fixed during the process. If i put sota in brackets it's a problem i've read about existing with the official release too.
Zangief - sloppy paint apps (sota) , loose joints (sota), gap between torso and crotch (sota), really loose connection between hip ball joint and upper legs - the legs stay put but can be removed easily without being heated, sloppy sculpt on hands (sota), fragile joint pins.
E-Honda - Sloppy paint apps (sota), loose joints (sota), sloppy sculpt on hands and feet (sota), mismatched joints - the disc on the inside of the joint is often bigger than the ball around the outside of it (sota), fragile joint pins - especially on the mid torso joint.
So yeah a lot of the problems exist on both bootleg and official releases, i'm quite happy having mine sit alongside my official sota so i'd probably say go for it, especially if you're gonna customize them.

I told a guy I'll contact him after I get my Chinese Honda and now I can't find that person Anyway, the figure came in a box but it's obviously a bootleg. The box art is super low res for crying out loud. The toy itself is only okay, with sloppy paint and loose joints. It'll work well as custom fodder though.
